The University Faculty Council (UFC) was formed in 2001 by a charter signed by all five schools of Pepperdine University. The purpose of the UFC is to provide a vehicle for collegial discussion and decision-making between Pepperdine University administration and the faculty. Each school has at least one representative on the UFC.
Discussions have been held regarding ethics, the Fall faculty conference and other important issues. The current Chair is Dr. June Schmieder-Ramirez of the Graduate School of Education and Psychology. The Vice-Chair is Mark Scarberry of the Law School. The new UFC Charter was voted by all five schools to extend to September 2010 and indicates confidence in the effectiveness of this body.
Provost Darryl Tippens and Associate Provost Tim Perrin also work closely with the UFC as does President Andrew Benton.
Any questions or issues that you wish to forward to the UFC please call or e-mail Dr. June Schmieder-Ramirez.
